Adult Bible Studies

Sunday Morning Adult Class Offerings: 

“Little Class”

The “Little Class” uses the Bible as its study guide. This discussion class attempts to take Biblical truths as presented by a variety of Bible versions and interpretations and apply those truths to the situation we find ourselves in each day.

We find it interesting that the Bible fathers warned us of many of the things we encounter in the world around us…that their insight into human frailties was incredibly accurate. We are often amazed at the life experiences that are freely shared by the class members.

Bible History has been meeting via Zoom 9 a.m.

The Bible History Class is a discussion class in which we seek to determine the meaning and application of scripture for our daily lives. We look at the context in which the scripture was written for better understanding.  Our discussions are Biblically directed, and we use a variety of literature to lead us. We often study the history and culture surrounding a Biblical story in order to better understand its meaning for us. 

Our current book study is “Jesus: The God Who Knows Your Name” by Max Lucado. We welcome to join in on the conversation Sunday morning as we meet via Zoom.  Contact church for link to join.

Class leader: James Barefield                               Location: Friendship Center

 Inquirers Class has been meeting via Zoom 

This  class studies everything from prayer topics to religious history. We choose our books after receiving recommendations from others, or if someone wants to explore a topic. We vote on the topic by the tried and true button method, the book receiving the most buttons goes to the number one spot for the next book to study.

This class is a fragrance free room.  All are welcome to join our group for a particular study, one Sunday, or to become part of our little ‘family’ of believers.  

Currently we are studying the book The Reason for God” by Timothy Keller.  We welcome you to join in on the conversation Sunday via zoom. Contact the church for link to join.

Coming Monday May 11 at Noon

New Book Study with Pastor John

Pastor John will be leading a discussion of Putting God Second: How to Save Religion from Itself by Rabbi Donniel Hartman. Pastor John originally read this book several years ago and says, “It quickly became one of the most important books I have read. And yet, it is also one that has me still thinking that I’m not sure I fully undestand all the implications that come from it.” Rabbi Hartman seeks to deal with the vexing question of why monotheistic faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – are “chronically unable to fulfill their own self-professed goal of creating individuals infused with moral sensitivity and societies governed by the highest ethical standards.” Copies of the book are available on Amazon in Kindle or paper copies.

 

  Wednesday Evening Class:
